I ARE TRYING TO LAND ! ON CRIMSON SQUAD Football Season Drawing Near SOUTHERN LEAGUE I PLAYERS’ AVERAGES ! FOR SEASON GOOD j SHOWINGS MADE BY STARS OF FIELD AND WILLOW IN SOUTHERN ! Two star teams, one composed of the best fielders and the other of the best bat ters, according to the final records, would furnish a lively series of games. Glancing down the array of the hitting team it would appear that they wofild have the advantage, but the fielders are «o little their inferiors in hitting and are 8o much better in fielding and have the better pitching staff that the chances would rest with the fielding team to win the series. The batting order of the fielding team would be more ideal than that of the hit ting club, giving them another advantage. Charley Schmidt, the big backstop of the Mobile Gulls, is the only player who ap pears in both line-ups. Here is the all star batting team and their records; Players.—Teams.—Pos. Pet.

SHI Auburn, September 20.—(Special.)— About 76 candidates for the football team have been reporting, each day to Coach Don ahue and his assistants, and have been put through light work; catching, punts, forward passes, blocking, dummy tack ling, etc. The boys have been going at the work with the best possible spirit, and it is believed that some good men will soon be developed to fall into the places made vacant by the passing of veterans. Ar nold, Newell, Lockwood, Christopher, Wynne, Esslinger and Sparkman w*.!l not return this year and these losses "hit the team hard." Auburn will he ro. titrate Indeed if Mike Donahue can find among the Scrubbs of last year seven men wno will be able to fill acceptably the places left by the passing ,nf these stars. Espe cially hard is the loss of "Ted" Arnold. VHHMNtHMHIHttMMHIHMMtiMUMtMMfMMI who ran the team last year which copped the championship. The fact .that the return of Thigpen, an all-southern guard last year, and "Hull'' Kearley is still in doubt, adds greatly to the uncertainty of Auburn's ability to “clean up" with her opponents this year. Promising linesmen from the J9J3 scrubs a fid class teams are: C. C. Robin son. Sample, Thigpen, Howe, tfri ke, Echols, and Major. A very strong ‘out law' team of ineligibles has been formed and is in charge of Assistant Coach Pen ton. It consists of the the two Honners, brothers of W. S. Bonner, captain of a former Auburn team; Ralph Davis, brother of a captain of a former Georgia team; Burns, brother of F. C. Burns, for mer Auburn center; Scott of Tennessee; Guess of Mississippi and Martin. These are all husky fellows, but will not be able to play tIlls year on account of the one year rule. If Thigpen ami Kearley decide to re turn. they will give a decided boost to Auburn's prospects. GIANTS AND BRAVES HAVING GREAT FIGHT New York, September 20.—Five victories for Boston and five winning games and two defeats for New York tell the story of the past week’s struggle between the rivals for the National league, pennant. A three-game gap now separates the tw’o clubs—a decided advantage for Boston, when only a little more than a fortnight ©f play remains before the season’ close. Starting in with the Cincinnati series, the Giants began to play better ball than they have shown for months, hut it looks us if their reversal of form had come too lute, their only apparent salvation now being the chance that the Bostons will strike a snag either in the remainder of the series with the westerners or the • lash with the Giants beginning Septem ber 30. in the American league Boston lias made little progress against Philadelphia, although the latter team has been play ing below its mid-season form. Mark men lead by six and a half games. Report for August Shows This State Stands 39th in Amount Saved Washington.

HE HAS IIEE.N FMTII ijl. TO THE PEOPLE AAR THEY ttfLL ..* \ BIRMINGHAM BOYS ARE TRYING FOR PLACES ON CRIMSON SQUAD By ASA ROUNTREE, JR. University, September 20.—(Special.) More than ordinary interest should be taken in the Crimson eleven of Alabama ' this fall by football adherents of the Birmingham district. This should be ^prompted through the efforts being made by boys from Birmingham, Ensley ami Bessemer to gain regular stations on the machine. The combination hailing from the Bir mingham district is a formidable crew, and many of the aspirants will likely be rewarded with success. Heading the list are Captain “Tubby” Long and Bill Harsh, the former from Bessemer and the other from Birming ham. Long is the fullback certainty, un less Coach Graves switches him to a halfback position. He is winding up his fourth year of activity on the southern gridiron. Harsh is commencing on his third year, and it is believed that he will stand out with more prominence than in the past. Another lettered man from Birming ham is Lowndes Morton, an old high school star. Morton won an end berth his first year out last fall and is back seeking the same position again. The scrubs or reserves have forwarded four Birmingham boys to the varsity squad, these being Vance Wler, Neal Ne ville, Harold Bowron and Griff Harsh. All of them formerly attended the Cen tral High scnool. Harsh, who captained the reserves last fall, Is after a quarterback assignment. Wief is a fullback prospect, while Ne ville and Bowron are contesting for half back. • Ensley is represented by “Pep’' Wells, the versatile Crimson receiver. Wells is trying out for the first time and has centered his hopes on quarterback. Captain Long has a side partner from Bessemer. He is Cargyle, considered by many, one of the best third basemen in the south since Derrill Pratt left school. Cargyle alternated at end last fall and won his emblem. He is again hot on the trail of that berth. * • • Coach Graves has made the first di vision in his football squad. This came near the close of the past week, and the freshmen were given a field to them selves. “Hog” VandeGraaff now has full charge of the new men and is wasting no time in whipping them Into Bhape. According to present Intentions, the fresh men will line up with the varsity In the first scrimmage of the Beason toward the latter part t>f the week. Nearly candi dates are out for the new eleven and among them are several worthy of no tice. But for the one-year rule, the varsity would be augmented by another Birming ham high school star, Morris Lathem, who proved a star at halfback for Cen tral high during the past several years. He reached the university a few days ago, but will be corraled with the fresh men. He is heavy and fast and would have proved a valuable understudy for the varsity. The varsity has* begun signal practice with a tentative line-up and much inferest is being centered on the line. The team appears heavier than last fall and is probably faster. The addition of Boman and Barnett Increases the effectiveness of the line, if they round into trim. The duo have been out of the game for a couple of seasons and must face heavy work to get back Into their old time shape. Because of the lack of a veteran quar ter, Graves may change his plan of bat tle. Hitherto the quarterback has re ceived the ball from the center most of the time and then relayed it to the backs but this fall the direct pass may be adopted. The plan has been tried with much success by various colleges and so Coach Graves may resort to this method to overcome the handicap caused by the absence of any of last year's quarters, j PAYS TRIBUTE TO — - Senator Ransdall Resents In ferences of Graft in Rivers and Harbofs Work Washington, September 20.—(Special.)—In the course of a speech on the river and harbors appropriation bill, which has run the gauntlet of senatorial opposition in some quarters for nearly three months. Senator Ransdell of Louisiana paid a glowing tribute to the wrork of the en gineer corps of the army In connection with waterway improvements. This arm of the military service is rarely in the pub lic prints, except where some great achievement is accomplished, like the building of the Panama canal, the ex ploration of unknown regions, or the map ping of vast tracts of land for the uses of mankind. Throughout the long and wearisome de bate on the rivers and harbors bill, much has been said about the engineer corps, not necessarily In terms of criticism, but in intimations that have rankled and left exceeding sore spots. It was these "faint praises" for the honor graduates of the gieatest military schools in the world that led Senator Ransdell to pay his compliments to one of the most useful and most necessary branches of the mili tary establishment. “Some of the best names in our history belong to the engineer corps,” said the junior senator from Louisiana. "Meade and Lee, who fought at Gettysburg against each other, were members of the engineer corps. They were the leaders of 40 members of that corps who attained commanding rank in the war betweeen the states. Some of the greatest generals on both sides were engineer officers. Joe Johnson, McPherson, Beauregard and Wright, and many others whose names are emblazoned on the pages of our na tion’s history." Coming down to the present time, Sen ator Ransdell called the roll of engineer officers who had made an Imperishable name for themselves in connection with the building of the Panama canal. Colonel George W. Goethals, like “Aboil ben Ad hem,” leading all the rest in that great galaxy. With the name of Colonel Goethals, Senator Ransdell coupled those of Colonel Sibert of Alabama, ttye late Colonel Galllard and Colonel Hodges, who, he said, acquired the training and experience which enabled them to con struct the greatest engineering feat of all the ages from their Intimate and per sonal association with river and harbor work. “Would any American dare intimate for an instant that Colonel Goethals would have favored a project in which there waa •pork’ or ’graft?’ I should like to see the man who would make that suggestion about Goethals or Sibert or Gaillard or Hodges,” said Senator Ransdell, "yet these men were connected with various and sundry river and harbor projects long before their government sent them to Panama to build that mighty achievement of man’s ingenuity.” The engineer corps, which Is probably the least showy of the varied arms of the military establishment, but which has at least as much to its credit as any other branch of the service, represents nearly every state in the union; the states not represented in the corps as at present constituted being Rhode Island, Soutu Dakota and New Mexico, although “Little Rhodey” has been ably represented In the past. One of the rather remarkable things in connection with the present engineer corps is that Oregon, Delaware and New Hamp shire have more representatives in the corps than they have members in Con gress. a situation that may never occur again. ■ Since the engineers in charge of rivers and harbors have reported favorably upon 329 of tli** 33i items in the rivers and harbors- bill, which lias been kicked about like a football for the past three montus in the Senate, there can be no denial of the fact that those wrho charge that the bill is lull of "pork” are at the same time re dec ting on the army engineers. .

A SQUARE DEAL FOR EVERY ONE AND A BUSINESS ADMINISTRA TION. SOLON JACOBS, CHAIRMAN. 1 BUSINESS HAS TAKEN ON BETTER' ASPECT DURING LAST WEEK Cotton Mill Men Have to Pay 9 Cents for Cotton. Farmers Inclined to Hold • By ROBERT MORAN Atlanta, September 20.—(Special.) Business conditions have taken on a decidedly better tone within the last week, and there has been an upward trend ever since cotton apparently re covered itself and began to go up in price. An Atlanta cotton mill man who had been paying around eight cents and even slightly under that price, said this week the best* he could do was nine cents and he was not getting much at that price. This la evidence of the fact that the backbone of the farmer has been stiffened, and he is getting to the point of demanding 10 cents or more, or holding onto his crop. Another Atlanta cotton mill man has adopted the plan of advancing eight cents a pound on cotton, using it in his plant and entering into agreement with the farmers who furnish it to him that if the price is higher than eight cents ,on Janury 1, he will pay them the difference. In other words he has adopted the plan of buying now’ on the basis of the January market, although in the event anything should cause a slump, he will have to stand the loss. Individual 'Buying Altogether it looks as if the “buy-a ba le-of-cotton” movement and the ag itation that has been coupled with it, has done its work, and if the existing depression is, as some put it, psycho logical, tile talk.and the action of many in buying cotton at 10 cents for the purpose of holding It has effectively be gun to counteract it. If It suceeds in i turning the psychological aspect entire 1.'- around, it is possible that good times may return even before the close of the European war. The ”buy-a-bale" movement has hud this elfert because it has attracted at tention not only at home, but through out the north and east. Big business ileuses in these sections which have entensive trade in the south, have seen that It was to their own direct Interest to take a hand, and these concerns have bought anywhere from- a few bales up to 10,000. As a natural corralary to tills move ment. there has come the widely adver tised plan with merchants, schools and olher institutions of taking cotton at 10 cents per pound in payment of bills. Some of them have even agreed to lake It at a price as high us 12 cents. English Mills in Market Another thing, is has been pretty well advertised around that represen tatives of the Englis mills are around and about In the cotton country try ing to make the best trades possible. England, it is said, has on hand a supply of cotton to last pretty well Into October, and naturally under pres ent conditions, it is not going heavily into the market until the last minute, although some considerable purchases for English spinners are reported to hu#’e been made at the season's bottom prices. It Is now generally understood that England’s consumption will be pretty nearly. If not equal to normal, and that within a short time she will have to begin to buy. All of these things and some others have had a most encouraging effect on tne situation as a result of which spot cotton in local markets has gone up anywhere from one to two cents a pound within the last 10 days. And there are not many farmers, apparently who are willing to sell at nine cents. The farmer seems to have been en couraged by the trend of events and Is holding on. Reports from some sections are that farmers are hauling their cot ton to gins and after It Is baled they are hauling it back home again In stead of taking It to the market. In other Instances they are selling small portions of their crop to meet pressing obligations and ptirchase food, and are holding onto the balance like grim death. Thus the south has practically taken care of its own problem without aid from the federal government, since it has been announced in Washington that the government has done all it can do, and that practically nothing more need be -expected. The sum and substance of it all is that, depending on the cotton situation ss It does, business in the south has begun to look up and there is a bet^ ter feeling all along the line. Bank ers here say things are much easier than they were a month ago. There ore some lines which will not recover immediately, hut the feeling is that everything will grow steadily better from now on In every line of trade. IF YOU FAVOR COMMISSION GOV.

WHITE OPPOSED TO TAXON FREIGHT Alabama Senator Points Out Unequality of Tax and Hardships on South Washington, September 20.—(Special.)—in anticipation of a fight in the Senate against the war tax measure, and in prep aration for any amendments which may be suggested. Senator White has fortified himself to combat any proposition for a tax on freight. From the first suggestion of this tax, when the bill was under con sideration by the ways and means com mittee, Senator White has been strongly opposed to It, and this antagonism has In creased as time has rolled on. Moreover, it Is understood that the pro ject is not dead yet, but that efforts will be made In the Senate to galvanize It into a very live issue. The very word “lobby” being taboo in Washington, it may be said that very strong “influences” have been at work to avoid a tax on gasoline and to reduce the proposed tax on beer, and some of these "influences” advocate strongly the tax on freight as originally proposed. Speaking on this subject today. Senator White said to the correspondent of The Age-Herald: "In fixing freight rates more considera tion is given to the weight and size of articles than to their value. In other words, a very much greater rate is im posed on weighty and bulky articles in proportion to value than Is Imposed on smaller and higher-priced articles. In this way, great inequality results between the producers and consumers of different kinds of articles. Those producing or consuming the heavier and more bulky articles are made to bear an unequal proportion of the public burden. “As the people of the south are pro ducers and consumers of the heavier and more bulky articles, practically all of which have to be shipped, they would be discriminated against If this tax were Im posed. "To Illustrate: The farmers of Alabama have to ship their entire cotton crop, in cluding seed; they also have to ship their fertilisers. The coal producers ship their coal; the iron producers their coal, lime rock and iron ore to their furnaces, and many have to ship the coke as well; and in addition have to ship their pig iron to market. The producers and consumers of lumber and other building material would have to ship all that they produced and consumed. The people of Alabama are large consumers of grain, foodstuffs and heavy clothing, large quantities of which would have to be shipped. Upon all these shipments our people would have had to pay this tax. For Instance, on the cotton goods, fertilizers and products of Iron consumed, they would have to pay the tax on shipping these articles to the manufacturer, as well as. the tax on the manufactured product returned to them for consumption, and thereby be made to pay a tax twice on the same article. “To show the Inequality I have just men tioned. the freight on a carload of hats worth $21,000 from Boston to Birmingham would be $250.• Seventy-five bales of cot ton from Birmingham to Boston, worth only $2500, would pay the same amount of freight. "A greater discrepancy Is shown when the freight on hats and other high-priced and light-weight articles are compafed with pig iron and coal. The freight charge on a carload of pig', iron from Birming ham to Boston, worth approximately $400, would be equal to about one-half of the freight charge on $24,000 worth of hats or similar articles; and still a greater dis ci epancy than this would appear when the comparison is made between coal and lumber and these finer articles. “This tax would not only be discrimina tory against the south and W'est, but there would be worse discrimination as between the poor and rich of the country, in that trv heavier and weightier articles furnish the prime, necessities of life, which the poor are compelled to consume, as they cannot freeze or starve; whereas, the rich could postpone purchasing their luxuries until the war tax was repealed. For these reasons, with many others, this tax would be very unpopular, and would cause such a revolution in public sentiment as Ij drive the country back to a prohibitive, protective tariff, from which the present Congress has relieved the people. “The taxation of freight at this time would be inopportune, owing to the general depression in business. It* tendency would be to discourage investments, to check enterprise, and in this way retard the development of the country, especially in Alabama. “For these reasons, as well as others not necessarily mentioned, I am op posed to this feature of the bill, and have stated that J would oppose Its passage in the Senate if it ever reaches that body.” Bids on Philippine Timber Washington, September 20.—(Special.) The bureau of insular affairs of the war department has received from Manila no tice that the privilege of cutting timber on a public forest tract on Luzon Island will be awarded November 14 next to the best ..bidder. The tract embraces about 280,000 acres, and the 20-year license or concession will be desirable to lumbermen prepared to handle the valuable hard woods on the tract. The insular bureau has descriptions of the tract and copies of the concessionary conditions, lor dis tribution to lumber and mill men in the United States. BURNS ANL PACE IN M CLEAN-L By ERN ESI Two Georges—George Burns of th< Giants and George Edward Lewis of th< Red Sox—are setting the pace in the majot leagues this season in producing clean up wallops, the New Yorker having made a late start in annoying the artillerists Each suburbanite has thrice come through during 1914 with three solid blows that have emptied the bases of their three runners. Lewis got the lirst of his reso nant raps on April 24. in the game with Washington. Ayers pitching; his second on June S in the game with Cleveland, Bowman pitching, and his third on July 25 in the gaim# with Cleveland, Gregg pitching. Lewis’ first and second clean up blows were doubles; his third a triple. Burns has specialized in three-bagger* when the occasion arrived to empty the basis, he having made three hits of this kind in a space of 16 days. The Giant’s first clean-up triple was made off Sallee of St. Lduis on August 12 and gave New York a victory by a score of 3 to 2, the Cards being in front 1 to 0 before the bit was manufactured. Five days later with the Pirate having a three-run lead, Burns went to bat in the eighth whent Grant, Bescher and Doyle were on the hassocks and they all three came off as a result of the St. Johnsville boy’s clout off Bob Harmon. New York won this game, 7 to 3. Burns’ third triple when there were three on cropped up in the third frame of the Cub-Giant contro versy on August 27, Chicago, with Charley Smith in the box, then leading by a run. When tl)e Inning was over the score was 4 to 2 in *New York's favor and when the game was finished the Giants were ahead, 9 to 2. Previous to the time he made his need ed three-bagger off Sallee, Burns never had been able to insert a clean-up smash into Natonal League contest. * * * Players who have twice sent three men scurrying plateward by making singles, doubles, triples or homers, are Tris Speaker of the Red Sox, Jieinie Zimmer man of the Cubs, Roger Peekinpaugh of the Yankees and “Buck’’ Wheat of the Superbas. The Chalmers car winner of 1912 got a. double off Plank of Philadel phia that enabled the Speed Boys to tie the Mackmen and escape defeat and a triple off Oldham of Detroit that meant a win. One of Zimmerman's timely drives was a four-bagger off Ragan of Brooklyn that gave the Cubs a win. Ragan is the only major league hurler who has been located twice for four-furlong smashes when all the hassocks hud occupants. He also has permitted a triple under such circumstances. The clean-up wallops of the year and the pitchers off whom they were made will be found below: Red Sox—7; Lewis, doubles off Ayers, Washington, Bowman, Cleveland and triple off Gregg, Cleveland; Speaker, double off Plank, Philadelphia, and triple off Oldham, Detroit; Gardner, double off Mitchell.

THEY PRACTICALLY ADMIT DEFEAT IX THAT THEY ARE SENDING ANONYMOUS TELEPHONE MESSAGES TO SOME OF OCR FRIENDS TRYING TO DECEIVE THEM INTO VOTING FOR WEATH ERLY. SUCH TACTICS DESERVE THE HEARTIEST CONDEMNATION VOTE FOR HARRY JONES AND A SQUARE DEAL. SOLON JACOBS, CHAIRMAN. (Advertisement) * James Weatherly has been a worker and a doer. His oppon ent, although an alderman for 15 years, has pointed to no accom plishment of his own as a reason for his election. His record so far as he has put it forward is a perfect blank. His only argument is a grossly perverted and unjust attack upon the record of a man who has done things, who is capable of doing more and larger things, and whose true record is as clean and spotless as that of any man who ever lived in this community.
